Breast lift can revitalize your body with a younger and elevated breast profile. A woman’s breasts often change over time, and her youthful shape and firmness may disappear. These changes and loss of skin elasticity may include pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, aging, gravity and heredity. can be caused by:

Breast lift surgery does not significantly change the size of your breasts or round the upper part of your breast. If you want your breasts to look full, you should consider breast lift and breast augmentation surgery.

Breast lift surgery is a procedure that should be preferred for quite personal reasons, and you should ask for it yourself.

Breast Lift Surgery Healing Process

The results of your breast lift surgery can be seen immediately. Over time, edema after surgery will decrease and the cut lines will fade and become much less visible.

Immediately after the operation, your satisfaction with the new image of your breast will increase. As your breast shape and position continue to settle, the final results of breast lift surgery will appear in the next few months. The cut lines are permanent but will continue to fade over time. The results of breast lift surgery are long-lasting. Your breasts may continue to change over time due to aging and gravity. You can keep the new look longer if you pay attention to the following situations:

  • Protect your weight
  • Have a healthy lifestyle.

It is important that surgical incisions are not exposed to excessive force, swelling, wear, or movement during the healing period. I will give you specific instructions to care for yourself.

Breast Lift Surgery and Pregnancy

Breast lift surgery should be evaluated after breastfeeding is completed.

Changes in breasts during pregnancy can minimize or reverse the healing of breast lift.

Likewise, significant weight loss after breast surgery can adversely affect breast appearance.

Breast Lift Surgery Steps

Breast lift surgery is a surgical procedure with various incision patterns and techniques.

The technique that is suitable for you will be determined by:

Breast size and shape

The size and location of the areolas

Degree of sagging breast

Skin quality and flexibility as much as extra skin amount

Step 1 – Anesthesia

Medicines are given for your convenience during the surgical procedure. There are intravenous sedation or general anesthesia for options. During the inspections, we will determine what is suitable for you.

Step 2 – Incision

There are three common incision examples:

a. Around Areola

b. Breast wrinkles around Areola and vertically downwards

c. Around the areola, vertically down from the nipple fold and horizontally across the nipple fold

Step 3 – Reshaping Your Nipples

After the incisions are made:

  • Excess breast tissue is removed, reshaped to improve breast contour and firmness.
  • The nipple and areola are relocated to a natural, younger height.
  • If necessary, the skin in the area of the enlarged areola is removed by removing the skin.
  • It is taken to compensate for excessive loss of skin elasticity.

Step 4 – Closing the Cuts

After your breasts are reshaped and excess skin removed, the remaining skin is tightened when the incisions are closed.

Some cut lines caused by breast lift surgery are hidden in natural breast folds; Others, however, appear on the surface of the breast. The incision lines are permanent, but in most cases they continue to fade and decrease significantly over time.

Many women want the most scarring possible. However, we recommend incisions that best fit your anatomy.

Listen to your doctor and do not reduce your result by requesting an incision that is not suitable for you.

Stitches are made deep into the breast tissue to create and support newly shaped nozzles. Seams, skin adhesives and / or surgical tape can be used to cover the skin.

Step 5 – Results

Breast lift surgery results are immediately visible.
